Can someone tell me how to store the current date/time when someone posts a comment on my blog? I could even update the comments table after the comment is saved in the controller, but I'm not sure how to do that either. Thanks for any help...

Create a field called created_at and/or updated_at and Rails will do it all automatically. Make sure it's a datetime (that's in postgres, not sure what the mysql equivalent is). You can also just make a datetime field called whatever you want, and do something like: comment.posted_at = Time.now and save it yourself..but it's easier/more railsy to just use the "magic" fields created_at/updated_at.
